At first I was disappointed because I thought it would be a "hood" book. The only thing hood about this book is where the main characters live.However,it was some crazy stuff happening in this book. What really got me was the end. This book proves that men are the root of all EVIL!!! lol ( )

Extremely saddening, but surprisingly entertaining. It reaffirmed my aversion to street lit, but it kept me reading. 3hrs 13mins ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 141653752X, Paperback)

Now in mass market, the first book in a drama-drenched series.

These four women will do anything to escape the hood.

Aisha has what every other ghetto girl envies: a loving man who supplies her with all the fashion, money, and accessories that scream “hood success.” Now that her husband’s in jail, Aisha may have to put something more precious than her designer gear up for sale in order to maintain her image.

Devani knows she’s found her way out of the hood when she sleeps with Tyrik, a star pro athlete. When Tyrik’s calls get further and further apart, Devani’s mother suggests the perfect scheme: become his baby momma. Will Devani’s plans force her man to commit, or backfire with the worst of consequences?

Molly is so in love with her husband, Junior, that she doesn’t care if she’s the only white girl in the hood. Blinded by her love, Molly lets everyone walk all over her. But Junior may cross the line, forcing Molly to give back all the abuse she’s taken.

Lexi has five children—and four broke baby daddies. Now she is married to Luther, Mr. Right in every way but in the bedroom. Determined to finally provide a good man for her kids, Lexi must struggle to fight her cravings for sex with her ex. Will she stay faithful to her husband or give in to a passion that may prove deadly?
